FALL CLASSIC FINALE AT LUXEMBURG
Tisler Fall Classic — Tisler Fall Marathon.
Either title fits the season ending “scheduled” two day race weekend at the Luxemburg Speedway that went in the books this past weekend.
Scheduled as a two-day affair, persistent rains on Friday transformed the event into a single day show Saturday; including all scheduled qualifiers and finals, plus a Race of Champions program for three of the competing divisions.
Originally slated for Friday only, Late Models were still part of the Saturday program. The addition proved to be profitable for Brett Swedberg, who controlled the class on the night.
Swedberg took the lead from Doug Blashe on the sixth lap, then pulled away to an insurmountable advantage in the 25 lap feature. Two late cautions with less than laps to go gave faint hope to the rest of the field as Swedberg easily regained control to the checker.
Shawn Kilgore mastered a stellar field of Modifieds, leading all 20 laps to record a win in the $1,000 to win division headliner. A charging Jared Siefert was closing the gap late, but ran out of time before he could mount a serious challenge for the win.
Siefert collected a little redemption, thanks to a victory in the Modified Race of Champions to end the night.
John Heinz held off both Travis VanStraten and Luke Lemmens in a three car battle for the victory in the Stock Car feature.
Heinz took the lead from Billy LeMieux on the ninth lap, then held off repeated challenges from both VanStraten and Lemmens right down to the wire. Heinz capped off the perfect night with a win in the division’s Race of Champions later in the show.
Todd Wiese shot to the outside of Scott Boulanger to take the lead on the second lap, then outdueled Modified veteran Eric Scribner down to the finish of the Sport Mod feature.
Wiese nearly missed a feature sweep as well, as Ryan LeMieux just topped him in the Sport Mod ROC.
Street Stocker Shawn Haydon eventually prevailed over Jeff Jungwirth and Jonny Ashcraft in that division’s finale. The lead switched hands multiple times until Haydon took control for good with just seven laps to go.
Other feature trophies went to Aaron Zellner in the Hobby Stocks, Jake Reif in the Micro Sprints and Mike Montie in the 4 cylinder class.
